    King's Yield

    Anyone else kind of miffed that this ability does absolutely nothing? Even when it proc's, you still only get 1 ore/gem per attempt. Even on easier items like brimstone and alumen, you never get more than 3...which you can get even without the ability active anyway. It doesn't even guarantee you to get multiple items.

    Most of the other gathering abilities i can notice a difference when they proc, though i wish they would be more potent (the HQ item ones, in particular). Would be nice to get a dev response on this.

    Abilities on DoL are broken in general. Proc rates shouldn't interfere with each other, and the effects should be stronger.

    you don't get more than the maximum amount of items, but a higher chance to hit the maximum amount. But as you said it is stupid when most things you want multiple of like mythril will only ever be 1

    I look back now that we have the new crafting and minirage at all the cobalt i carelessly used up. I understand why they dropped it to 1/swing for many things, but WTF YOU DO THAT FOR SE?! I do wish KY would kick it up to 2 on the rare occasions that it procs.

    What i understood from Kings yield is that it doesnt give you a higher chance to get more items, it just makes it so you get shards or dark matter, but thats my understanding maybe im wrong.

    I didn't notice this. Seemed like abilities were broken to me.

    Nah, you can get shards and DM even without it active.

    Every time this ability procs for me I get 2 of every item that you can get multiple of, every single time. So not only is it useless, it actually nets me less items than if I hadn't used it at all, since I rarely ever only get 1 of the item.

    It is hard to say if abilities work since everything is still random.

    Eg. Rank 38 Miner gets HQ Cobalt ore. Me, as lvl 50 Miner, same point, with rare items ability on, get 0 HQ cobalt ores.

    Since it is not 100% with an ability on, it is really hard to notice if any of them actually work.

    King's Yield - definetally doesn't work on Mythril, Electrum or Cobalt ores. I think it should, since they changed the yield rates on these types of ores.
